2. What do potential readers need to know most about the main character? Vikki isn’t a Christian, but she is struggling hard with that position. And she’s trying to be honest about that, but only to certain people. So, she will act and react unlike a Christian should.
3. Which supporting character caught your interest the most? Brandon was definitely my favorite character. He just throws his whole heart, soul and body into protection mode, and is a true hero, in my opinion.
4. What journey does the main character take? The big crux is not about Vikki’s amnesia, in my opinion, but rather that she has to decide who she wants to be. That’s a really big decision. Occasionally, she has to take a break from it, but mostly she fights for understanding to make the right choices for herself.
5. How is the writing style or quality of the writing? I love Chautona’s writing! I consider her one of my very favorite authors. The only issue I ever have with her work is that occasionally, I feel left behind. Her writing is tight. Every word is important. There just isn’t much “fluff” at all. Since I read a LOT, I tend to read the subjects, verbs and skip most of the adjectives and some of the phrases. When I do that with Chautona’s books, I miss stuff. Important stuff. I have to slow down, and occasionally go back and re-read to figure out what is going on. So…I’m thinking that’s more MY problem than the writer’s.
6. Is there humor in the book? There is humor. Sometimes, I don’t think it’s *that* funny. But people are different, aren’t they? We all find some things funny that others don’t. Some of the author’s humor is tongue-in-cheek rather than laugh-out-loud.
7. Are there spiritual truths to be gleaned from the story? Yessss. The Lord is definitely “wooing” Vikki. But she has a hard time believing and verbalizing how God is working in her heart. But He continues to draw her to Himself and that is a precious truth! I also love Brandon’s self-control. It is a rare virtue in today’s society.
8. For whom would you recommend this book? I think everyone would like this book.
9. Who will not like this book? I don’t know. I can’t imagine anyone not getting caught up in the story!
10. Why did you give it the star rating you did? I’ll be giving it a 5-star rating on Amazon. It’s an excellent read. I can’t wait to read the third one. There is going to be a third one, right, Chautona?!!
Imagine, if you will, awakening to a world that is completely unknown to you. Looking into a mirror, and not recognizing the person reflected there. This is Vikki's reality. As she struggles to discover who she is, and how she ended up where she did, Vikki is comforted by the only person who truly understands what she is going through- Ella. It was encouraging to revisit Ella, and watch the interaction between these two who had been thrown together by virtue of waking up with zero memories of their pasts. Vikki's search for her previous life opens the door to danger, both for her, and for Ella. Vikki is curious, and drawn to Ella's strong faith in God, and the faith of those God puts in her path. When she finds her childhood journal, it reveals a life filled with horrible difficulties. Can she put what she learned about her life into God's hands and move forward in faith? Just what on earth has happened to Ella and Vikki? Can they ever truly be safe?
I had some struggles with this book that I didn't have with the first book. I wound up with confusing chunks of the dialog that didn't flow, and were defying my comprehension. That's so unusual for me that I finally read them out loud to someone else in hopes of gaining added clarity. When that wasn't successful I settled into reading through those parts and not worrying about them not making sense. With that out of the way the rest was more interesting. I don't like the doctor in this book at all, and I still haven't a clue how the hierarchy of some of the villains really worked.
I did learn two new words. Cray-Cray, which makes me want to go eat crawfish every time I read it, and foo. Past a band name, that one was very odd so I looked it up as well. Turns out that one has several definitions that could fit, the top one being a Scottish variation of the word how.
I did feel for Vikki when she found out what she had endured as a child, although exactly what happened to her was muddled. I remain uncertain of the depth of what she went through, but she doesn't remember what happened the way any of the rest of us would. It was one of the few times I connected with her during this story. The ending isn't at all what I expected, nor how I wanted things to resolve. Now I have more questions than answers and await the third book in this series expecting it to contain complete answers to the mysteries and hopefully several HEA's.
